@strong{We discourage use of a non-@code{nil} value for
@var{initial}}, because it is an intrusive interface. The history
list (which did not exist when we introduced @var{initial}) is a far

If the argument @var{inherit-input-method} is non-@code{nil}, then the
minibuffer inherits the current input method (@pxref{Input
Methods}) and the setting of @code{enable-multibyte-characters}
